Scientific Summary 109 in IUFRO News Vol. 42, Issue 8, early September 2013
At a research workshop of IUFRO Working Party 7.02.04 on "Viruses and Phytoplasma of Forest and Urban Trees" in Berlin, Germany, on 29 May 2013, participants agreed that there is an urgent need for reliable methods of virus detection and identification in forest trees, as well as a need for tools for disease management.

The mode of transmission has to be considered as an important factor affecting the spread and impact of a virus infection within a forest.
